    TLDR: Hikari Ultra’s ($90 Amazon) for drop in replacements for projector low beams. Otherwise proper HID kit.

    not perfect. possibly some of the worst lights you can buy and will likely perform like sht. and LEDs in the fog lights? don't be that guy

    either read the thread posted, or use danielgonzz's suggestion in the low beam only (the summary if you insist on LEDs)

    I'm only using for low beam. And I rarely ever use the fogs. I never drive with fog lights on for no reason.

    read why cheap Amazon LEDs will perform worse in that thread.
    (you don't even have to read the whole thread, just the first post, or even just the section on LEDs)

    re: fog lights. Good to hear you only use them when you need them but when you do use them, they will perform like crap as the light scatters everywhere in a housing designed for halogens

    Nice, 1 month returns on Amazon. Give em a go, plus cheap if they die. But the reviews are real good.

    @crashnburn80 has some awesome post with actual science that states drop in LEDs are under performing and are terrible for our light housing. Long story short read through that thread that was posted and you will get the proper lighting info and recommended bulbs
